In honor of Women’s History Month, Resorts World Casino is hosting an exhibit honoring Haitian painter and makeup artist Chantal Gesse from March 9 to April 7.
Tomorrow, March 23, Gesse will greet guests at a private reception in honor of her work.
Known for her depiction of the human form in its natural state, Chantal is one of New York’s most talented artists.
Gesse was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. She moved to New York City in the 1980s, where she began to flourish in art.
Her art received recognition when Paramount Pictures featured her work in films such as Boomerang and A Bronx Tale. Today, you can see her paintings in many restaurants across the city.
Gesse received her Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) from the Parsons School of Design, where she was able to experiment with different techniques.
The reception with Gesse will begin at 6 p.m. on Thursday. The exhibit is open until April 7.
